SEA-EFFECT SNOW APPROACHING ISTANBUL, TURKEY BACK IN MID-FEBRUARY OF LAST YEAR! (credit: Ferhat Gül)
DISCUSSION: Despite this not being a recent event, similar events occurred during the middle to latter parts of this past winter across parts Southern Europe (including but limited to Southern/Central Croatia, Italy, Turkey, and Slovenia)! Note the evident contrast in the visibility from just inside to just outside of this particular snow squall! A similar situation unfolded during the recent Historic Buffalo Lake-Effect snow storm back in November 2014! As in that event, this event clearly displayed the intense whiteout conditions just inside of the lake-effect snow squall moving onshore!
